The American cuisine found on the menu at the Palm Court marries a modern approach to food with the traditional style that you would expect to find at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Plaza Hotel in New York City. Executive chef Willis Loughhead features a range of fresh and seasonal ingredients, many sourced locally from New York State and surrounding environs. Depending on the time of day, choose from a variety of menus, each with a different audience in mind. You’ll love the decadence found on the breakfast, brunch, and lunch menus, and your kids will delight at the cheeky expressions served up on the Eloise menu (available at breakfast, brunch and lunch). But if you can only have one meal at the Palm Court, Forbes Travel Guide Editors advise that Afternoon Tea is the way to go. This only-in-New York tradition whisks you away to a different era, one filled with history, grandeur and style. Chef Loughhead and Pastry Chef Jasmina Bojic combine savory with the sweet in the best possible way during this formal tea service. Eloise — a fictional little girl who lives at the Plaza in a series of children’s books — even makes an appearance on the Afternoon Tea menu for a kid-friendly tradition you won’t want to miss.
